The Eyes of the Lord!
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. 2Ch16:9
It requires a Loyal and Willing heart to find God, a heart
wherein the Word (seed) can take Root and Produce a result. (Lk8:15) He Rewards
those who Diligently Seek Him! (Heb4:6) All this requires
EFFORT put forth, a STRIVING and endurance to enter His
Kingdom. (Lk13:24, Matt10:22) Only those who Seek Him with ALL their
heart, mind and soul will find Redemption in Christ! Deut4:29
But from there you will seek the
Lord your God, and you
will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, Jer29:13-14
This has been so since the beginning, The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. Ps34:15-16 but deceitful man has sought out many ‘schemes to Substitute this Obedience in a Proxy Righteousness magically ‘imputed to them by ‘faith alone. (Sola-fide) God Calls all men everywhere to Repentance and faith Proven by deeds (Acts17:30-31, 26:18-21) ‘Belief in Him is Coming out of Darkness to Light from the Power of Satan to God through a Self-cleaning Repentance, departure from iniquity, in which the heart is Purified through obedience to the truth.
Now, therefore, says the Lord, Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm. Joel2:13014
Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. Isa55:7
He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Prov28:13
But again, all this requires EFFORT on man’s part and the Liars have Proclaimed for centuries that any effort man puts forth to Seek God or be found Worthy in His sight is filthy rags done in a Self-righteous attempt to boast in works instead of faith. Unfortunately MOST of mankind has bought into this lie and have managed to gain a false sense of security from it with a full measure of contentment. As a result professing Christianity is in s Sordid state of ruin in which people have become experts at arguing in favor of sin, disobedience and outright rebellion to God’s Word, while at the same time ‘praised for preaching Sound doctrine promoting holiness and a form of godliness. (2Tim3:5)
People are told that Jesus paid it all and God does the Choosing. Under such a premise man does nothing expect ‘Trust that he has been ‘chosen because he ‘believes that Jesus died for his sins and rose again from the dead. That essentially IS THE GOSPEL in the minds of most professing Christians today, turning from Sin is NOT an issue. As a ‘Christian God knows you are going to keep sinning (since you were born defective) and has provided a means by which He can ‘Declare you Righteous and no longer hold you accountable for any wrong doing. (because Jesus paid it all and obeyed in your place) In a sense, He doesn’t see you sinning when you sin because Jesus STANDS in-between, so you can ‘SIN and NOT be of the devil, as 1John3:7 proclaims: ‘He who sins is of the devil, he who does what is right is of God’
To them: ‘IF you Don’t Sin, you’re of the Devil and if you Claim to be doing what is Right and not Sinning you’re a Liar with no truth in you’ and they have 1John1:8 to PROVE it! They all say: ‘If you are a Christian you will repent and try not to sin. We all sin but that is why Christ died for us. Thus in essence the Gospel is: Jesus died so we can sin so ‘go and sin some more! (Can you really Sin and Not be a SLAVE to sin? Rom6:16-17, John8:39)
In Reality these people are ‘Willingly Ignorant’ (2Pet3:5) that God Searches the heart and Tests the Mind and GIVES to every man ACCORDING to his Ways and according to the FRUIT of their Doings! Jer17:11
They Scoff and Deny this Truth and Will Not Prepare their hearts to Seek the Lord in humble Repentance to Come Clean from their duplicity and deceit. Instead they despise the riches of His Patient endurance toward their willful rebellion as they store up Wrath against the day of Wrath claiming that His Wrath was Satisfied on the Cross and there’s no further Condemnation for their on-going Sins, they say are concealed by a Proxy Righteousness! BUT: ‘there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Heb4:12-13
STILL: The Eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth Seeking a WILLING and Honest heart that Will Turn and Obey Him, COUNT the Cost of Discipleship and bear FRUIT unto Righteousness!
know God and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever. 1Ch28:9
The Professed, Sin everyday Christians say that God has to MAKE them Willing because their ‘inbred malady called Sin has rendered their ‘willingness into ‘Un-willingness, therefore it’s IMPOSSILBE for man to have a ‘GOOD and HONEST’ heart toward God and bear FRUIT Worthy of Repentance and then Walk upright in His Sight. No matter WHAT the Scripture says! (But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience Lk8:15) They say that man’s heart is ‘Desperately Wicked’ born into sin and INCAPABLE of a truly NOBLE act, even the act of Coming Clean with God in Repentance! So they Continue in Darkness concealing their evil Deeds with mimicked clichés that Sooth their Conscience against conviction and keep their hearts satisfied that ANYONE who comes along preaching Righteousness is sent by the Devil to disturb their Peace. But they are Condemned by the Words of the Master they Profess to follow:
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone doing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God. Jh3:19-21
To the Professed World those Living in Righteousness, freed from the Bondage of Sin and addiction are IN BONDAGE to the Law and of the devil. Only those NOW Sinning, under Grace are FREE in Christ Trusting in His Finished Work done in their place. They believe that the people who run around telling others they must STOP Sinning to be a Christian are flaming hypocrites and judgmental monsters in league with the devil as the ‘accuser of the Saints trying to rob them of their confidence in Christ.
So it all Boils down to this: ‘If you’re Sinning now and admitting there is Sin ‘in you at all times making you the wretched man with a desperately wicked heart, you are a Child of God, loved, kept and secure for all eternity because you TRUSTED in Jesus’ work and not your own. BUT if you are Striving to Keep yourself Pure of Sin, Shunning even the appearance of evil and making every EFFORT to add to your faith, work out your Salvation and Contend earnestly against the saved in sin lies, you are Beelzebub incarnate headed Straight for Hell and the most hatful person anyone could encounter in this life! It is VERY EASY to tell which one you are Just look in the Mirror and allow your DEEDS to be exposed by the LIGHT of Christ. Then run back to your Pastors and giggle like little children who imagine they have slain the Dragon on the play ground and have now Vanquished their adversary.
because you have listened to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep all His commandments which I command you today, to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord your God. Deut13:18
